It is an old maxim that republics live by virtue; that is, by the maintenance of a high level of pub lic spirit and justice among the citizens.--James Bryce. THE CITY CAMPAIGN. Three candidates are in the field for the office of city commissioner. The nominations by petition include J. W. Reely. R. A. Gove and William Hous ton. Mr. Houston is the present com missioner of public safety. His ad ministration has, we believe, com mended itself to all citizens who he lieve In a business administration. The Missoulian has heard from Mr. Houston's associates in the city coun cil sincere approval and indorsement of the part he has taken in the handling of the city's affairs. It is a matter of record that the police de paitment of the city was never as economically handled as at preshnt; we believe it was never more efficient than it is now. The record of good service is the best indorsement a man can have for office. Mr. Houston's record surely will commend him to all thinking citizens who desire to have Missoula well-governed, well-policed and well-administered. SALMON DAY. Following the example of other communities whose output is a spe cialty, the Puget sound region yester day observed Salmon day as a means of giving publicity to the importance of the great fishery interests of the northwest.

It is the most radical st'lp which any president has taken :incer Jefferson received the dilol)inu.t iI corps; upon that occasion we are in formed, Jefferson was attired it hili dressing gown and his aplea ran't, stocked the gold-laced ministers from, Europe. President Wilson has not gone to that extreme--not yet--but he is getting a good pace in that direc tion. For the sake of preserving our friendly relations with foreign pow ers, the president donned a black coat upon the occasion of receiving the ambassadors and the ministers, but with that exception he has invariably worn a gray business suit at his of ficial desk and in his official move ments. Mindful, as a student of his tory, of the effect of Jefferson's lack of conventionality, President Wilson conceded a point to the for WOODROW WILSON, PROGRESSIVE The name of Simmons of North Carolina appears at the head of the senate committee on finance, as it is published in the press dispatches. Simmons is a reactionary of reactionaries; he is at the head of this important commit tee by virtue of the old doctrine of seniority which has governed the senate so 'long; for months the progressive element of his party has sought to upset this doctrine; the news this morning indicates that they have been suc cessful in other lines, even if Simmons stays at the head of this committee. If the Simmons crowd is as firmly in the saddle as this situation would indicate, there are hard and troublesome times ahead for the avowedly progressive purposes of President Wilson. There is no doubt that the general public sentiment toward Mr. Wilson's administration is one of good will and hopeful expectancy. Also, there is a wide-spread recognition of the fact that the president has before him a task of colossal proportions. And the diffi culties of this task are increased by the presence ofý Sim mons at the head of the finance committee. President Wilson came into office, the choice of a mi nority of the voters of the country. Moreover, he came into office, uttering progressive sentiments and declaring his purplose to surround himself with progressives only. He had behind him a consistant and nearly life-long record of action exactly opposite to this declaration, but the pub lic accepted his assertion and i npow waiting for its fulfillment. So the country is watching for developments. The ex pectant public looks for direct evidence of the sincerity of his conversion to progressiveness. Answer in part has been given by his selection of cabinet officers. In this respect, certainly, the choice was favorable. It has placed Mr. Bryan at the head of the cabinet and it is gen erally accepted as a fact that the Nebraskan's influence will extend beyond the state department. But the departments which furnish the most direct indi cation are the interior, the treasury and the justice port folios. And of these, the interior department is the most important, for it deals with the great conservation work so directly that there is no chance for evasion. There is no middle course there. Decisions must be either progressive or reactionary. In his choice of a secretary of the interior, Mr. Wilson was-from the progressive point of view-most fortu nate. Mr. Lane, as a member of the interstate commerce commission, accomplished more than all others to bring that commission to a state of high efficiency and to make it fulfill, as closely as it does, the ideals of the people. He has already evidenced strong sympathy with progressive ideas and principles and there is every reason to believe that he will give the stamp of progressiveness to his de partment. And the same may be said of the new attorney general and the new secretary of the treasury. Messrs. McReynolds and McAdoo are expected by those who know them best, to leave no room for doubt as to the sincerity of the progressive declarations which the president has made. But, again, there is Simmons. Will he be able to block the plans of the president? He will if he can. He is as reactionary as Aldrich ever was-but he is not possessed, they say, of the Aldrich ability. itgn representatives. But the justices of the supreme court, even, could not cause hiln to don blac(k andt when they spied that "trim business suit" they rubbed their eyes. It Is an old-fash loned cloth, the pepper-and-salt of our boyhood, that the president wears. The coat is of the cut known as "sack." It is said that this is the first instance in which the sack coat has invaded the presidential office. M r. Taft wore a cutaway of dark material and Mr. Roosevelt was equally con servative. }iut there are no coat tails in the White ilrouse these days. And other innovatlions are looked for. The new :dministratlion is said ti, hbe r thusiasti( over basebhall.

For a whole year its chief hbject will Ibe to entertain millions of people from every 'part of the globe. The occasion will he the official open ing of the Panama canal. The object will be to inform the world of the greatness of California, in particular, nuld f Pacific America in 'general. front the dtawn to the twilight of 1915 the cities of San tFranciscto and San Diego ,with their two expositlons [w'ill make the yea a red blotch of achieve tllent aind entertainment ion old Father Time's drab calendar. San Francisco within its toblden tilte and ian Diego, nestlilng in the arch of its iwn (iSilver Gate, expect to shloliw, the hui;lln rlace the greotest in tirnational two-ringed cilrcus ever staged. MSore than that: They think iheiir 'i.onbined efforts will produce the univtersal Circus .Maxinlus. So it will if al outlay of $70,000,000 and 70.000,000 tons of energy and brains cnlllunt fir anytlhing. Tihir motto now is: "itreatfist and Best." After 1915 they think it will be "California; the Sta , Iilit ,Made Pailnna , Famoul s."' C'alifotrnia has been planning to astonish the worll in at signal way since 1909, when Iiii id a of celebrat ing the Ptnm aI, a"'hievement in proper tltin was first broachld definitely by A. IA. ;vidiso1l, then president of the S:; Dhiego chmilier of (connellrce. Out of that tllhought is growing itht Pan uola-Pacific International exposition at San IFralncisco anlid the Panama California. elxpositifn at S in Diego. Never h.'' efiir, has one state tried to do two sil ll big things at onlce. P'resident ''harles ('. Moore and his assistants hp111 to create the greatest world's fair in hisltory ill the Panama Pacific Interrnational exposition at San Fh"rancisco. It will oipen l'eliru iry 2i0 and close Deceimber 4, 1915. 'lThe area will be 625 acres, about the 51in1 as the Chicago exlSslitiion, but with gri atetr floor space for exhibi tion purposes. The tlestimony of of fical s illll exhibitors ,wass that the St. l.ouis fair of 1904 was spread over altoget.lher tuoo Inuch ground. The San Francisfo,' fair will cost about $50, 000.000. The citizens of (altlifornia subscribed $7.000,000; the state appro priatedl $5,000,000; and the city of San F'rancisco issued bonds for $5.000,000. Several millions of dollars will be raised by tile 30 counties of California for their individual displays. Fully 33 foreign nations will send costly ex hibits, and all the great commercial concerns of the world, without refer ence to color or creed, will spend large sums in the advertisement of their Waires. Chronologically the story of the San Francisco fair is: Authorized by act of congress January 1. 1911; first spadeful of earth on the exposition site turned by 'President Taft Octo Lbr 14, 1911; authorized to include in its area the adjoining military reser vation by act of congrzss JanuaLy 18, 1912; heralded before the world by presidential proclamation dated Febru ary 2, 1912, as a universal exposition to which all nations were invited to send exhibits and visitors. The act ual construction work on the main buildings will bagin in July of this year and must be finished within one year. The fleets of all the great na tions will assemble in Hampton Roads, Virginia, in January or February, 1915. Their commanders will be re ceived in Washington by President Wilson. The president will return to Hampton Roads with them and there' will review the greaf:st international naval display in history. After which the fleets will proc 'ed to San Fran cisco via the Panatia canal, and the fair will open February 20, closing December 4. Occasion, site and climate will com bine to help San Franclsco make good its boast that the coming exposition will be the best ever attempted. All other world's fairs have commemor ated some historic event of the past. The 'Panama-Pacific International ex position will be a distinctive adunct of the opening of the Panama canal, an event not only historic, not only of national importance, butl one of great international ,moment and an event of the world. The location of the fair grounds on the shotre of San Fran cisco bay, with a frontage of over two miles, facing the playground of the navies of the world as they do their part in the exposition program, is an advantage which no other fair has en joyed in this Country. The climate will enable the exposition to stay open from 'winter to winter, with a tem perature averaging i59 degrees throughout the entire nine and one half months. Fully half of that time the weather will he ideal for the thousands of families who will live in tents in the nooks around th2 bay while they visit thie fair in an easy going fashion. Eleven great palaces of exhibits Iwill be built-fine arts, education, social economy, liberal arts, manufactures and varied indust ris, machinery, transportation, agriculture, live stock, horticulture, mines and metallurgy. They will form the center of the ex position, and 'will be connected by a series of courts, the c:ntral one to be 500 by 900 feet. Green vines and flowers will predominate instead of the ghastly, unadorned, plaster walls so common in previous expositions. The foreign and slate exhibits will stretch along the shore. The Midway of the fGolden .lGte. which will be the amusement street, and other attrac tions of a similar nature, will bt on the other side and will reach almost into town. A great feature will he that the fair will he selective and not collective. Quality will be the aim, not quantity. A new departure will bh a palace de voted to social science in ;which will be shown with great completeness the progress of the world in the uplift of humanity. Correlative with th, exposition will he the first sessidtn of the Congress of 'Confederated Nati6ns of the World. It is planned to have only the greatest men of th , world In that body, and they will discuss the vital problems of all nations. What more appropri ate time than the opening of the watercourse which will unite the world's great maritime highways? What better place than the city whose enterprise brings the American people face to face with the greater ,problems and opportunities of the Orient and Latin America? Over 50 years ago William ,HI. Seward said: "The Prob lems of the future are to be solved upon the shores of the Pacific." These conferences may prove preliminary steps toward universal peace and a world confederation. 'San Diego's Panama-California ex position was born on August 25, 1909, When G. A. Davidson, then president of the city chamber of commerce, as sembled the directors and told them that *San Diego was the proper place to hold a world's fair to celebrate the opening of the Panama canal. The San Diego exposition easily will rank with the Pan-American, the Lewis and Clark, and the Yukon fairs. Enthusiasts claim that it will far sur ,pass them. Certainly, 'it will be more unique and will have a richer setting. The fair will cause an outlay of fully $20,000,000. The citizens of San Diego, a city of less than 75,000 people, raised the sum of $2,000,000 to start the pro ject. Nearly $6,000,000 is being spent on a magnificent 'sea wall. John D. Spreckels is building the San Diego and Arizona railway, a distance of 220 miles, on a new and lower grade. Nearly $5,000,000 will be spent in Bal boa park, the magnificent domain of 1,400 acres in whose lap the exposition will be held. )ver 11 miles of docks and 1,000 acr s of reclaimed land for warehouse and factory sites will be ready to astonish the visitor when the fair opens on January 1, 1915. The exposition vwill last a whole year. 'The exposition will be remarkable for its distinctive features. One will be the 30 acres of Spanish gardens. The municipality is raising its own plants now on the exposition grounds, 30 acres beinig assigned for tiW nursery and 70 acres for trees and shrubs. The mission style of architecture will pre dominate, and the plans now being worked out were the fourth set to be drawn. Of spiecial importance will be the greatest and most complete Indian congress and exhihit ever arranged, representing ive ry tribe of North and South America. E'very country of both continents will also have an adequate display. The exposition will demon strate the poteintial richness of San Diego with its ciommanding site on the sea and Its rich background of 1,000, 000 acres of irrigated land.
